Plus Berube only has one season of ECHL experience, and he only appeared in 37 games due to injuries. He needs to get some starts.
Not to mention that even Hextal thinks that JF needs more time and starts before he moves up to the AHL. Ranford likes him a ton but like you said, BF is 21 and if it takes him four more years to make the NHL he will still be right in line with other solid goalies who made their jumps.
